Batman: Return to Arkham has been put on an indefinite delay and will not release until November, reads a report from Eurogamer.
According to unnamed sources cited by the publication, several issues relating to frame-rate inconsistency has forced Warner Bros. to put the game’s launch on a hiatus. Even the November timeframe is not set in stone and is just the earliest release window that the publisher is eying. It’s possible that Batman: Return to Arkham gets delayed even further if there are other issues that need to be addressed.
Batman: Return to Arkham was originally planned for a release this month but was pushed back indefinitely. Following the abysmal PC port of last year’s Batman: Arkham Knight, both publisher and developer are adhering to strict policies to ensure quality. That is music to the ears of consumers, but has disappointingly come too late. Nonetheless, it is clear that the game will not release unless all related issues are fixed.
Batman: Return to Arkham bundles remastered versions of the first two Arkham games: Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, as well as including all downloadable content released so far. While the third installment from Rocksteady Studios was met with a mixed reception, the first two games (especially Arkham City) are hailed as the best Batman games in existence.
The game is in development for only PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Since Warner Bros. is yet to divulge a release date or even a release window, fans should prepare themselves to see the game get delayed into the first quarter of 2017.
